A new trailer has arrived for “Hunt for the Wilderpeople,” filmmaker Taika Waititi’s followup to “What We Do in the Shadows.” Waititi is also the director of Marvel’s upcoming “Thor: Ragnarok.”
Based on Barry Crump’s 1986 book “Wild Pork and Watercress,” the comedy centers on a juvenile delinquent (Julian Dennison) who’s left in the care of his cantankerous foster uncle (Sam Neill). When a misunderstanding leads to a national manhunt, the two must get over their differences to survive in the New Zealand bush.
“Hunt for the Wilderpeople” opens March 31 in New Zealand. A U.S. release date hasn’t been announced.
